Victory? Maybe Not

Today Texas CPS filed an appeal with the Texas Supreme Court:

“The state today went to the Texas Supreme Court to appeal a ruling that it had no right to seize children from a polygamous religious sect and asked for an emergency order that would allow it to keep the children in state care until the high court rules.

I knew CPS would not give up and I also knew that they would try everything in their power to keep the children. In spite of what the 3rd Court of Appeals said about the fact that CPS did not present any evidence of danger to the physical health and safety of children, CPS still contends:

..”that if Thursday’s decision by the 3rd Court of Appeals in Austin is allowed to stand, it will require the state to return the children “to persons and an environment where two days of testimony … clearly established that the practice of forcing underage girls into marriages and resulting sexual relationships…”

I guess they have no choice but to keep perpetuating their lies, and defy what the 3rd Court of Appeals said. CPS does not want to return the children and they will do everything they can to keep them. They are also saying that even if they had to return the children, they can’t because they don’t know who the parents are. We know that is a lie too, but they persist in trying to get the rest of us to believe it.

Interestingly enough, late Thursday more CPS workers were at the ranch trying to get more children-even after the 3rd Appeals Court decision had already been made. Interesting, no?

CPS also wants to prevent Louisa Jessop from benefiting from the 4th Appeals Court decision in her favor:

“On Thursday, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services asked the 4th Court of Appeals in San Antonio to stop Jessop’s custody hearing, filing written arguments that state District Judge Michael Peden exceeded his authority and that “it would not be in the children’s best interest to be torn between two courts rendering
opposite decisions which would have to be addressed in further appeals.” A three-judge panel denied the state’s request.”

Thank goodness the request was denied.

CPS believes the law does not apply to them. Hopefully these rulings will give them a wake up call, or at least give other CPS units around the country a wake up call.
